Editor's Review: Choosing and Using a Scroll Saw

by Paul Schürch

review date: June 1, 2005

With the average woodworker in mind, the author tested five midrange scroll saws with throat depths between 18 in. and 22 in. He put the machines through a variety of tasks, and all made acceptable cuts. The author evaluated the saws in four areas: ease of tensioning and changing the blade, ability to change speeds quickly, stroke length (longer is better), and stability of the table and upper arm. The Dremel made very good cuts and scored well in all areas, earning the author's choice award for Best Value.

Great tool, good price. Had mine for 4 years. I like the support for both blade types, tool-free blade changing, the bonus sander feature, the built-in dust-blower and light -- both which are easy to adjust the aim of -- and the bonus dremel rotary attachment. That's a lot for the price.


The 1800 Scroll Saw Station is no longer made so I purchased the replacement 1830 Scroll Saw. It is an excellent tool with extremely good fit and finish. Dremel as a company has been excellent to work with. Highly recommend the tool and the company.
